WAYLAND — Kaitlin Buchholz’s big night helped the Washington girls’ track and field team to a second-place finish in Class A at Thursday night’s Ekstrand Relays at WACO High School.

Buchholz, a senior, won the 400-meter hurdles in 1:11.45, took second place in the 100-meter hurdles in a season-best time of 17.24 seconds, and took second place in the discus competition with a personal-best throw of 98 feet, 10 inches. She was also a member of Washington’s 4x400 relay team — which also included Morgan Kimball, Addison Gaal and Mariah Reighard — that took second place in 4:25.07.

“She had a great night,” Washington head coach Stefanie Tschantz said of Buchholz. “She got second place in the discus with a personal-best throw. She won the 400 hurdles. She got second place in the 100 hurdles with a season-best time. And she had a great split in the 4x400. She had an outstanding night. She’s starting to put it all together right when we need her.”

The Demons also won two other events. Reighard won the 400-meter dash in a season-best time of 1:02.61, and freshman Kelly Wheeler won the 100-meter dash in a personal-best time of 13.72 seconds.

“Wheeler is really getting better out of the blocks, and the warm weather really helped her,” Tschantz said.

Senior Joni Erwin took second place in the shot put competition with a throw of 32 feet, 11 inches, and she was third in the discus competition with a toss of 89 feet, 5 inches. Freshman McKayla Miller was fourth in the shot put with a throw of 89 feet, 5 inches. Gaal finished third in the long jump competition with a personal-best leap of 15 feet, 0.5 inches.

Sophomore Stephanie Loy took third place in the 1,500-meter run in 6:00.32, and sophomore Sarah Greiner finished third in the 3,000-meter run in 13:29.78.

Freshman Mackenzie Knutson took third place in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:16.98, and freshman Carolan Hoffman came in sixth in the 100-meter hurdles in a personal-best time of 18.59 seconds.

Freshman Aubrey Zimmer finished fifth in the 400-meter dash in 1:09.59, and she took sixth in the 800-meter run in 2:52.29. Freshman Jasmine Mares was fifth in the 800-meter run in 2:51.46.

Washington’s quartet of Gaal, Knutson, Kimball and Wheeler took second place in the 4x200 relay in 1:54.04, and the 4x800 relay team of Mares, Kimball, Loy and Beth Dillon was runner-up in 11:14.71. The sprint medley relay team of Maddie Bohr, Dylann Schluetter, Wheeler and Reighard finished second in 1:59.94, and the 4x100 relay team of Gaal, Knutson, Bohr and Wheeler was third in 54.73 seconds.

The Demons scored 133 team points, finishing second to Mt. Pleasant, which won the meet with 158 points.

“We got second place without several of our runners there, so that shows the depth of our team,” Tschantz said.
